Sometimes growing-up is a little (or a lot!) messy. Picture learning to eat with a spoon for the first time–or learning to ride a bike or drive a car. Or run the marathon. Involves a process, frustrating though it can be. Yet it reaps rewards.Like you don’t have to wait for someone else to feed you anymore!!
Perhaps you like to do something once, do it well, and move on the next goal.However, when you accept the fact that you won’t be able to have your entire life mission and implementation strategy (or your mental to-do list) completed flawlessly and “on time every time” you can actually experience a sense of relief. Ahhhh.
Living according to God’s design for you is an important key to glorifying God and enjoying Him forever. Still it doesn’t happen overnight. It is a step-by-step process. God invites you to enjoy your journey with Him.
So, may you and I have a little patience with our (uniquely individual) messy process today.
When has your grown-up life reminded you of your “untidy” toddler days?
